Magorzata Haadewicz-Grzelak, Marta Bogusawska-Tafelska, “Communication as a Life Process”

2017 | ISBN-10: 1443873217 | 165 pages | PDF | 3 MB

This volume presents the meta-proposals of the ecolinguistic paradigm within contemporary language and communication studies, and will serve to incite further scholarly work within this research program. Eclectic and interdisciplinary as the contributions gathered here are, they all pertain to a dynamic, multilayer approach to human communication. The ecolinguistic framework delineated and put forth for consideration here is founded on the large and vibrant scientific plane of the holistic paradigm, also referred to in the book as the post-Newtonian paradigm. As such, the contributions complement the mainstream linguistic focus on the cognitive and material forms of the language system with another perspective, pointing to non-cognitive communication modalities active in the communication process along with the (neuro-)cognitive machinery. The human communication process is seen here as a life process occurring in the context of other life processes, intraorganismically, interorganismically, transpersonally and ecosystemically, to enumerate these layers of the communication grid.

Carlo Cecchetto, Caterina Donati , “(Re)labeling”

When two categories merge and a new syntactic object is formed, what determines which of the two merged categories transmits its properties one level up – or, in current terminology, which of the two initial categories labels the new object? In (Re)labeling, Carlo Cecchetto and Caterina Donati take this question as the starting point of an investigation that sheds light on longstanding puzzles in the theory of syntax in the generative tradition. They put forward a simple idea: that words are special because they can provide a label for free when they merge with some other category. Crucially, this happens even when a word merges with another category as a result of syntactic movement. This means that a word has a “relabeling” power in that the structure resulting from its movement can have a different label from the one that the structure previously had. Cecchetto and Donati argue that relabeling cases triggered by the movement of a word are pervasive in the syntax of natural languages and that their identification sheds light on such phenomena as relativization, explaining for free why relatives clauses have a nominal distribution, successive cyclicity, island effects, root phenomena, and Minimality effects.

This book constitutes the joint refereed proceedings of the 5th CCF Conference on Natural Language Processing and Chinese Computing, NLPCC 2016, and the 24th International Conference on Computer Processing of Oriental Languages, ICCPOL 2016, held in Kunming, China, in December 2016.
The 48 revised full papers presented together with 41 short papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 216 submissions. The papers cover fundamental research in language computing, multi-lingual access, web mining/text mining, machine learning for NLP, knowledge graph, NLP for social network, as well as applications in language computing.

Julia Fernandez Cuesta, Sara M. Pons-Sanz, “The Old English Gloss to the Lindisfarne Gospels: Language, Author and Context”

English | 2016 | ISBN-10: 3110438569 | 432 pages | EPUB | 7 MB

Aldred’s interlinear gloss to the Lindisfarne Gospels is a key text of late Old Northumbrian. The papers in this collection approach the gloss from a variety of perspectives to shed light on numerous issues, such as the authorship of the gloss, its morphosyntax and vocabulary, its sources and intertextual relations, and Aldred’s cultural affiliations.

Nicolai Volland, “Socialist Cosmopolitanism: The Chinese Literary Universe, 1945-1965”

2017 | ISBN-10: 0231183100 | 256 pages | PDF | 7 MB

Socialist Cosmopolitanism offers an innovative interpretation of literary works from the Mao era that reads Chinese socialist literature as world literature. As Nicolai Volland demonstrates, after 1949 China engaged with the world beyond its borders in a variety of ways and on many levels-politically, economically, and culturally. Far from rejecting the worldliness of earlier eras, the young People’s Republic developed its own cosmopolitanism. Rather than a radical break with the past, Chinese socialist literature should be seen as an integral and important chapter in China’s long search to find a place within world literature. Socialist Cosmopolitanism revisits a range of genres, from poetry and land reform novels to science fiction and children’s literature, and shows how Chinese writers and readers alike saw their own literary production as part of a much larger literary universe. This literary space, reaching from Beijing to Berlin, from Prague to Pyongyang, from Warsaw to Moscow to Hanoi, allowed authors and texts to travel, reinventing the meaning of world literature. Chinese socialist literature was not driven solely by politics but by an ambitious-but ultimately doomed-attempt to redraw the literary world map.
